My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a musician mostly, and have recently become totally obsessed with photography and videography as well. Can't seem to put my camera down these days! In addition to my own professional musical work (writing music for orchestras, choir, chamber music, etc), I also teach at a super fun and reputable art school.

When I'm not busy with the music and capturing an amazing moment with my camera, I'm all about laughing with good friends and/or with family. It's super important to be able to laugh about everything...especially myself!

I like surrounding myself with people who are smart, very aware, but also down to earth and an easy hang. Smart-ass humor runs in my blood, so a bit of friendly ribbing and banter is necessary to get through the days.

Ideally, you are a woman who is comfortable in her own skin and isn't afraid to speak her mind while exploring. It's very attractive when a woman is interested in discovering who I am without losing sight of her own identity and prowess in life.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making myself and others laugh, lifelong friendships, setting up a big creative project for myself and then seeing it through from beginning to end. Connecting with my students, teaching music, being a part of a tight circle of friends and an even tighter family.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Walking - my favorite form of meditation.
2. Creating/expressing: could be composing music, shooting and editing video, photography. I need to be consumed by creative projects that matter to me.
3. Family that I treat like best friends, and best friends that are like family.
4. Stuff not made by people. For example, nature.
5. Food that is art. Not visually, but taste.
6. Flirting, laughter, banter.
7. My camera.
8. Willingness to break the rules.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was 10, I was breakdancing during recess, and during one of the more ridiculous moves, I split the crotch of my pants wide open in front of 15-20 onlookers. I then ran to the school office crying. Out of laziness, this became my "Most Embarrasing Moment" essay at school for the next several years in a row.
